As our last Saturday blog post of the year for this blog, I wanted to do a little round-up of a few useful articles written here over the years on using language. These tips are helpful for putting a sentence together and proofreading your own work, so if you’re looking to brush up on your writing skills, be sure to check out the articles that these tips are linked to!

Three great writing tips:
